    boy, did I want to take them all home. Remember Bridegmen? Troopers wheel? Turkey in the Straw? Crusaders off the line with Man of La Macha?

      One of the first guys I wrote with - I worked hands for a WGI perc line in college - was center snare for two years in Scouts.  And the director of the band was in Bridgemen.  We're about 1.5 hrs from Murfreesboro, and I always say I'm going to get over there for the Summer Games.  And then I always end up in registration.

      I took my husband, a non-musician, to a show several years ago.  We sat about a dozen rows up on the fifty.  By the end of the show (this was the year Madison did the Carmen/West Side show) he was just a quivering mass of jello.  He looked at me in the car and asked how in the world I could go to a show any longer than that one.  For the life of me I still can't figure out why he wouldn't want to go to several back to back!

      •  In Montreal, I went to every single show (0+ / 0-)

        From quarter finals in lowest class on up. Got heatstroke. Happy as a clam. Went to England on vacation, saw an all girl outfit, kids, really. Did tricks with the old 100 pound flags, triple tongue scales. Marched Philly VFW competition parade. Let the kids en route try our equipment. Two weeks later I was sick as a dog with chicken pox. I miss the old style.
